Through the breezeway, and now on Main Street. All traffic is pedestrian, bicycle, and horse-and-buggy, due, of course, to the ban on motor vehicles. Main Street is rows of attached shops, galleries, pubs, restaurants, candy shops, and hotels. All quaint, beautiful, and oozing Victorian heritage.
I reach the north end of the main stretch where to my left I see Fort Mackinac up on the hill, and to my right is a harbor and lines of buggies waiting to be commissioned.
I turn around to catch the shops I missed, but first, I stop by the Pink Pony Bar & Grill in the historic Chippewa Hotel. The photo on the left is the hotel's stretch of sidewalk. The photo on the right is the view from my table where I have grilled tuna on a salad. Yum!
I finish the length of shops and such and come out the south end of the main area. Here I find Victorian mansions which are businesses, summer homes, and bed & breakfasts. Mackinac Island is a place where all the houses have names.
Also down here is the public library (left), and a view of the Mackinac Bridge ... via a beach alongside a white picket fence. I did say I love it here, right?
More mansions along Main Street.
